Channellock Code Blue 13 Tip Ratcheting Screwdrivers

Channellock Ratcheting Screwdrivers

I recently had the chance to test the new Channellock Code Blue 13 Tip Ratcheting Screwdrivers

I used to carry a 4 in 1 screw driver in my tool bag and the Channellock  13 in 1 driver has moved in and is now living there…. I love it.

A cap at the end of the handle slides out with all of the tips stored in individual cradles.

Having this many different driver tip options is really convenient and has saved me many trips back to the tool trailer for a different driver.  I really liked the ratcheting feature, after using it a few times I was able to get comfortable changing the ratchet switch one handed.

The quality of this driver is excellent.  My only concern is the how long the plastic storage slide will last.

At $33 this driver takes the place of 13 other tools, will save you time and does not take up that much space!   I recommend it.


  • Ratcheting action for fast, easy two-way operation
  • 28 tooth ratchet provides 225 inch lbs. of torque
  • Dual composition grip for comfort
  • 13 different tips to fit any job
  • Convenient bit storage
  • Multiple bit load (1/4″ Hex Shaft)
